Welcome to St Joseph’s Primary School
On behalf of all our staff, I would like to warmly welcome you to our school. My name is Suzanne Martin and I am privileged to be the Head Teacher of St Joseph’s Primary.
The staff in St Joseph’s work closely together to nurture every pupil to reach his/her full potential and we take every opportunity to celebrate the children’s achievements during their learning journey. We encourage all our pupils to develop a love of learning and to strive for excellence. We encourage all our children to play a responsible and caring role in the life of our school and within the local community and beyond.
Our school has a happy, positive ethos based on our gospel values. We have very high standards of pupil behaviour and children are guided to take responsibility for making positive choices. Children are rewarded for their efforts and we invest considerable time building our children’s confidence and self-esteem. We ensure the highest level of pastoral care for our children and families.
Our school community is an extension of our school and we aim to develop relationships in an atmosphere of trust and partnership. We welcome the opportunity for you to be a partner in your child’s learning and we encourage you to become involved. Parental participation very important to us in St Joseph’s Primary and we welcome your participation as a full member of our school community through our Parent Council or as part of the wider Parent Forum.
